Lucky Strike Lizard, Kuusamo Professor in various sizes, and for something a little different, Sebile Onduspoon.

The Sebile, with its rattles, seems to be a bit of a marmite lure for the fish, but on the right day and water they can be extremely productive.

The Sebile is also quite a slow sinker, so can be worked shallow. For trolling, you may need some weight above the leader to get them down to where you want them.

You can troll any spoon, but the best spoon for trolling I've used (for pike) is the biggest Kuusamo in copper/silver. Sends out tons of flash and some good vibrations, plus it tracks well, even when weighed down. I often fish them on short lines just behind the prop, which can be very productive on the right day. Else fishing them wide on planer boards is another way to explore shallower water at a decent lick...

Late to this thread - but echo the promoters of the Kuusamo Professor. It's been a 'go to' with good reason for me in previous years

When the very first pike cull was being sorted the killer spoon was a 6x4" monster hand beaten from a copper sheet and fished bumped along the bottom.
Looked b awful but the 20's wouldn't leave it alone, some silly journalist even had one in under 30mins of being afloat.

Block of wood, some scrap copper and a ball pein hammer and who knows what you could make.

Another "like" for the lucky strike lizard spoons. Casting or trolled. Caught me loads of fish. possibly change the hooks though... the last ones I got seemed to be inferior to the older models.

Weight em down when trolling as required to get to the depth you need.
Love the hit!
